In previous chapters we saw reference in news articles where Magedson’s former attorney Jack Delehanty claimed Magedson was ran out of town.  Other articles clearly reflected a degree of rancor with the townspeople.  You can see he wound up in Arizona with his parents Sylvia and Martin.  Ed Magedson was living at the base of the Superstition Mountains in a pretty rural area.  The deed of the property reflected Martin & Silvia Magedson Trust, which I understand he uses today.  I have never seen the house as it burned down prior to me ever getting that far in.  There appears to be a smaller building there and Eric Skelling had a motor home parked on the property.


I originally went up there to get answers to question I had about the whole operation.  My first contact as seen before was a neighbor named Phil who referred to Magednson as “Crazy Ed”  He related that there was some discord between the two of them over a street light that Ed felt should have been placed on Phils property.  Phil is the one that gave may the information about the realtor selling the property and later took me up to visit other neighbors who later gave me the flyer Magedson had distributed throughout the neighborhood.
